When trying to restore a backup to a SQL Server Express 2008 database I got the following error:
Restore failed for Server '...\SQLEXPRESS'. (Microsoft.SqlServer.SmoExtended) System.Data.SqlClient.SqlError: The database was backed up on a server running version 10.50.1600. That version is incompatible with this server, which is running version 10.00.2531. Either restore the database on a server that supports the backup, or use a backup that is compatible with this server. (Microsoft.SqlServer.Smo)
Is there a way to get a backup which is compatible with the older (in my case 10.00.2531) version from the newer (in my case 10.50.1600) version of SQL Server Express?
